Advocacy

A primary objective of the Australian Law Librarians' Association (ALLA) is to act as a lobby group to promote the interests of law libraries, law collections, legal information services and associated staff, in the wider community.

To this end, ALLA is occasionally called upon or invited to make submissions to government and other bodies on matters of interest to our members.
